Weather permitting we like to sit outside. House spinach salad always a must. First sh and chips good light batter, curry shrimp and black rice and lamb chops are what we usually order.

A friendly, comfortable restaurant that serves a variety of beers and wine but is really known by locals as a wonderful place to get a great meal.

This place is so excellent. It has a crazy selection of draught brews and a great laid-back patio atmosphere. Definitely one of my favorite finds and the most criminally underrated places in Tampa. The steak sandwich is TO DIE FOR. Get it with sweet potato fries. The dip is killer. The meat slices are a little thick but whatever, I... More

Mad Dog's is a wonderful South Tampa restaurant and watering hole. There is an active bar and both indoor and outdoor seating. The menu is varied with a combination of bar food plus excellent entree's. We particularly like the grilled salmon dish, which is as good as any in South Tampa. The atmosphere is informal and very pleasant.

My friend and I sat down at 12:45 pm and by 1:30 pm we still did not receive our lunch. My friend told our server at about 1 pm that she was in a rush and had to go to a meeting. There was no explanation for the delay. No drink refill during the time period. Nothing. We had to... More

Mad Dog's is a longtime Tampa standout. Great bar and really good food. Located on South MacDill, so really convenient for South Tampa peeps! Parking can get tough when busy.

Like the dark vibe and the pirch. Had tuna tar tar and liked it. Needs a more extensive beer selection, though. Will definitely go back.

Good pub grub and a very nice pub ambiance. Definitely recommend it to anyone who likes an evening in the pub. The staff has always been friendly to us (we've dined here four times so far). Thumbs up!

We love British pubs and this one was great! Tap beer ranged from Newcastle to Jai Alai. Our bartender that night was Hugo. Excellent bartender who actually talked to his patrons so you felt right at home. Chef Paul is an extraordinary cook with a great range. We had calamari and goat cheese pizza for apps. Both were great. The... More
